He forgot the main reason traffic light cameras are there. To make money. Pure and simple. There have been studies that have show that the yellow light times are shortened when red light cameras are put in place here in the States. Several different entries on Google for those really bored or didn't know that. In Columbus, Ohio there were a couple of city council members who had to resign due to taking bribes from a red light camera company and all the cameras were removed.
I'll second the being able to have the extra screens when working remotely. Plus it would be fun to see the double-takes when firing up a project Valerie-type system at Starbucks when I get called on the way home because someone did something wrong and it has to be fixed ASAP. You can get two external monitors for a laptop but apparently it depends on the docking station (YMMV) so you're still stuck with one screen when you travel.
I basicly grew up in the Washington DC area and remember when the Air and Space Museum first got the Enterprise model. They had it hanging from the ceiling in the experimental craft section and then moved it to the gift shop when they moved the gift shop. I was disappointed that it wasn't on display the last couple of times I was there. Now I know why.
They tried fining us for being out of compliance with our license (too many VM hosts according to them) but they couldn't tell us what exactly our license was. We have one VMware stack left and when that system gets upgraded it bye-bye VMware. So I'm all for what's happening and seeing new competitors show up.
In TOS, the warp scale was the warp number cubed equaled the number of times the speed of light so warp ten would be 1000 times the speed of light. (I think, it's been a while since I cracked open the technical reference). In Next Generation the warp scale was recalibrated to where warp 10 was how long it would take to cross the galaxy edge to edge in 1 year. Obviously Scriptwriters are notorious for playing fast and loose with the rules if the rules get in the way of a story. (i.e Paris' warp 10 journey through every point of the quadrant)
I'm sure there's a table out there somewhere in the internets that someone has put on a webpage.
Apparently you haven't read the bible either. The 144000 thousand in Revelation refers to the numebr of Jews (12000 from each tribe) who will be gathered (post-rapture) to witness to the world during the last 3.5 years before the final battle of Armegeddon[sp?]. It's not that hard of a read, why do so many people insist on taking things out of context?
Fail icon for obvious reasons.
build an electric car that can genereate it own electricity. You still have to have a battery to get it going but then it genereates enough to power itself. Why haven't we seen any cars being developed along those lines (obvious theories ,conspiricy or otherwise, aside)? Then the only green house emissons comes from the manufacture of the car itself and the starter battery.
There's always going to be cost for obtaining the raw materials. The Leaf would never work for me because my cross-city drive would leave me stranded one way or the other (maybe for others who live within 10 miles of their workplace and few accidents slowing things down between). The head engineer at Nissan said the best milage you can get with 1 180 lb driver and no passngers with air or heat on would be 68 (winter with heat) or 54 (summer with air) and no cargo included. Oh yeah and that was at a whopping speed of 35 mph (sorry can't seem to locate my mph2kph converter right now). So did they test drive these with some small Asian woman who weighed 80 pounds soaking wet and not using any of the accessories and not carrying any cargo.
EV's are a joke until they become self-powering.
Hook it up to a sterling engine to recycle some of the heat energy and help power the laser after you've fired it a couple of times. Granted I'm in IT and completely unfettered with any engineering/physics know-how but sounds like it would work...
My personal experience was Gabbie, an expeditor for a home building company here in the states.
We had added a custom screen to the sales order screens for adding miscellaneous items to go out to a job site (extra lumber, brackets, etc.). At least three times a week she would call saying that her miscellanious item report didn't print. That had never happened even during development and testing. I came to find out that when she had printed the report was during the printing of work orders to go out to the shop floor. They got sent to the printer as individual print jobs, all 150 - 200 of them. Her report was in the middle of the stack. The days she didn't call they either had no extra items to send or she ran it before or after the work order print.
She went on maternity leave for two months. Two months of no calls. The person subbing for her would go look through the work orders. The day Gabbie came back I got the call "My report didn't print".
